Environment activities

Uganda had 4.93 million hectares of forest cover by the 1990’s (24.1%) but by 2005 this reduced to only 3.55 hectares (17.4 %). Uganda lost 28 % of its forest cover within just 15 years at a deforestation rate of 92.000 hectare per year.

Over 90% of the domestic energy needs in Uganda is by biomass with 96 % house hold cooking dependent on fuel wood (Enku) or charcoal (Amanda). Industries and brick burning activities also use a lot of wood. It is anticipated that by 2026, Uganda will need 1.7 million hectares of wood per year (NFA). Uganda loses about 6,000 hectares of forests every month.
